CANNES, France, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao and his Brazilian counterpart Dilma Rousseff met here Wednesday to discuss the expansion of bilateral cooperation.
During their meeting ahead of a G20 summit to be held here on Thursday and Friday, Hu and Rousseff also had an in-depth exchange of views on regional and international issues of common concern.
Hu recalled that during Rousseff's visit to China in April, the two countries reached important consensus which strongly advanced the bilateral relations.
The two countries, Hu added, should deepen political mutual trust and fully utilize bilateral cooperation mechanisms.
China is willing to maintain close high-level contact with Brazil, and the two sides should map out a cooperation plan for the next decade so as to promote the bilateral relationship in a coordinated and strategic way, he said.
Hu said the two nations should further develop pragmatic cooperation and fully use their mutually complementary advantages in capital, technology and energy resources to earnestly push forward cooperation in all fields and achieve a win-win result.
Hu said the two countries should also strengthen policy coordination and strategic cooperation within multilateral frameworks such as the United Nations, BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and the G20 in order to jointly safeguard the interests and rights of the developing countries.
Meanwhile, the two countries should also enhance cultural exchanges and people-to-people contact, the Chinese president added.【1】 【2】
